Are you happy?

Posted by on in Sean Homes 101

Happiness is kind of a subjective term – and it’s truly in the eye of the beholder. For one person, happiness could be solitude on an island, curling up with a good book or simply watching a sunset with a loved one. For someone else, it could be engaging in some problem solving, performing live, etc. One thing is for sure though; everyone wants to be happy. If you’re looking for hard proof, consider the number of self-help seminars and literature on the topic. Amazon alone has 67,000+ books on the topic of finding happiness; however, it doesn’t have to be so complicated. If you take the time to analyze the characteristics of truly “happy people”, you’ll notice a few reoccurring traits:

  • Happy people tend to be comfortable in their own shoes – making the best of the human experience rather than allow themselves to be bogged down by what others may consider weaknesses or shortcomings.
  • Happy people tend to avoid toxic individuals, and associate themselves with other happy people.
  • They often stay informed, but willfully disconnected, allowing themselves to avoid media overload.
  • They celebrate their accomplishments, rather than compare them to those of others. They live for the moment, take the time to appreciate everything, and trust in the process of existence itself.
  • They go with the flow – and are grateful for the positive things that come their way.
  • They are generally positive, have high levels of adaptability, and most of all, find the most value in non-tangible life rewards, such as friendship, fun and family.
  • Embracing any combination of the above can definitely help to bring more happiness into your life. The underlying theme here – or rather, common thread – is really to put everything into perspective, and understand what matters most in your life. Don’t sweat the small stuff!
